How safe is the DOE's WIPP nuclear dump when sinkholes open in New Mexico?

See also

The Department of Energy (DOE)'s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) is located near Carlsbad, New Mexico. WIPP was created to provide a "permanent disposal solution" for radioactive waste. Unfortunately for us all (especially those living downwind), the earth under Carlsbad does not present a stable configuration for a nuclear dump. Two massive sinkholes opened in Carlsbad in 2008 and another in 2012.

Is the DOE's WIPP nuclear dump safe in light of sinkholes opening in Carlsbad, New Mexico? You be the judge of that.

Just how safe are nuclear storage dumps in sinkhole territory? According to some, the Carlsbad situation represents a "time bomb waiting to implode."

And accidents will happen! During the month of February, WIPP experienced not only a fire in its underground storage dump, but a radioactive leak into the atmosphere, as well.

The North American continent is experiencing a tug-of-war with Planet X and, as a result of all that stress, suddenly appearing sinkholes worldwide have become the "new normal."

New Mexico Tech geologist, Lewis Land says more sinkholes will form. He says it's not a question of if, but when more will form. He says Carlsbad has "sinkhole potential" and other sinkholes could open at any time. Land believes the two sinkholes in 2008 were not a natural occurrence because they opened above two salt mines. He says there's a cavity below ground because the salt has been mined out and the salt-well cavern in Carlsbad is so close to the surface that it could collapse at any time.

Also in New Mexico in 2012, Juan Pino walked outside his Magdelana home one morning to find a large sinkhole in his yard. He noticed something unusual in the ground and walked over to check it out. What he found was an 8 foot wide and 60 foot deep sinkhole. (Pino VIDEO)

And, as Lewis Land so aptly put it, "More sinkholes WILL form. It's not a question of if, but when." So what happens if a massive sinkhole opens under the WIPP repository? You can also be the judge of that.
